America mourns loss of three great leaders 

John F. Kennedy was from the 
beginning of his political career a 
champion of human rights. During 
his three terms in the U. S. House of 
Representatives, he became one of 
the most outspoken proponents of 
better working conditions and in- 
creases in wages. As the 35^^ presi- 
dent, he became involved with raising 
the quality and availability of public 
housing and lowering income ta.xes. 
During the last months of his admini- 
stration, he became increasingly aware 
of the need for implemention of civil 
rights legislation. 

Kennedy, the youngest president 
ever elected as well as the first Roman 
Catholic, was also a Pulitzer Prize 

winning author. His 1956 book 

Pn^files in Cotirage highlighted eight 
American politicians vsho went 
against popular consensus because of 
personal beliefs. 

His sweeping social reforms, along 
with his charismatic personality, al- 
lowed him to become one of the most 
popular presidents in history. On 
November 22, 1963, assailant Lee 
Harvey Oswald ended the admini- 
stration that was sometimes refered to 
as Camelot. While riding in an open 
limousine in a motorcade traveling 
through downtown Dallas, Kennedy 
was hit by two rifle bullets. The assas- 
sination sparked a tremendous period 
of nation-wide mourninu. Kennedy, 

who uoukl base turned 71 in IMSS, 
has become peniianeiul\' fm/en in 
ilie minds ot all Americans at the 
relati\'el\ \ininu age of 46. 

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. will be 
remembered as perhaps the most 
important black leader in American 
history. In his .^9 short years, he 
ignited fellow blacks to change their 
subservient role in society. His chal- 
lenge of American segregation laws 
and his dream of racial equality for all 
men led to dramatic changes not only 
m civil rights legislation, but in the 
minds of individuals. 

Dr. King was greatly influenced in 
the teachings ofGhandi. who stressed 
the theory of non-violence as a more 
effective and a more moral method of 
protest. Dr. King spelled out this idea 
in his now famous "Letter from Bir- 
mingham Jail," which was coinposed 
after his 1963 arrest during a march 
protesting segregation at lunch count- 
ers and in hiring practices. His prac- 
tice of non-violence resulted in the 
loss of several young radicals from 
the civil rights campaign. During a 
march supporting the passage of the 
Voting Rights Act, Dr. King and his 
followers were met outside the Selma, 
Alabama city limits by a barricade of 
State policemen. In order to avoid a 
violent confrontation. Dr. King 
stopped at the barricade, led the group 
in prayer, and marched back to Selma. 
Dr. King was criticized by many of 
his followers for not pushing through 
the barricade, but he was adamant 
that his group not be associated with 

In .August of 1963, Dr. King deliv- 
ered his"l have a dream" speech at the 
fool of the l,incoln Memorial during 
the March on Washington. In his 
speech, he spoke of a day when all 
men would unite as brothers. In 1964, 
his dream became more of a reality, 
the passage of the Civil Rights Act 
enforced desegregation in all public 
facilities. For his role in this legisla- 
tion, Dr. King was awarded the Nobel 
Prize for Peace. 

human rights. As Unitetl States At- 
torney Cieneral under the Kennedy 
administration, he was particularly 
concerned with the i|iicsiuin ot racial 
inec|ualiiy. During one a civil rights 
protest in Montgomery, Alabama, 
Kennedy sent 400 federal marshalls 
to protect Dr. King, who was being 
threatened by a mob. As Attorney 
General, he dealt directly with many 
racial issues, always fighting for 
equality among men. 

■,>?i!, i'.\t ,s .!•:. 

On April 4, 1968, while in Mem- 
phis, Tennessee supporting a strike of 
the city's sanitation workers. Dr. 
King's was assassinated by James 
Eari Ray. Dr. King's progress did not 
dissolve, however. During the twenty 
years since his death, there has been 
an extraordinary amount of progress 
made in the area of racial equality. 
Dr. King's birthday is now a nation- 
ally recognized holiday. But until 
there is total racial equality. Dr. King's 
followers will not let his dream fade. 

Robert Kennedy, brother of Presi- 
dent John Kennedy, continued the 
family tradition of fiahting for basic 

Kennedy was also one of the first 
prominent politicians to speak out 
against President Lyndon Johnson's 
Vietnam policy. He was also instru- 
mental in the case against noted mob 
figure Jimmy Hoffa. 

In 196.S, when it looked as if 
Kennedy would win the democratic 
nomination for president, he was 
assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan in 
Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. 
His support of human rights legisla- 
tion won Kennedy not only a place in 
history, but a place in the minds of all

Dr. James Thompson 

Professor leaves lasting memory 

Dr. James C. Thompson, an asso- 
ciate professor of political science at 
UNCG since 1975, died of a heart 
attack on January 16, 1989. Anexpert 
on American foreign policy. Dr. 
Thompson was one of the most widely 
respected teachers in the field be- 
cause of his ability to incorporate his 
many years of work in Washington 
into the classroom. 

His experience in the area of for- 
eign policy was vast. In 1965, he 
began working for the Department of 
Defense as an intelligence research 
analyst, contributing information to 
the team which produced the Penta- 
gon Papers. In 1979, he became a 
special assistant to the Secretary of 
Defense, serving in the European and 

NATO Affairs office. In addition to 
his teaching duties at UNCG, Th- 
ompson served as a guest lecturer at 
the Sergeants-Major Academy in Fort 
Bliss, Texas. 

Dr. Thompson was also a noted au- 
thor, publishing such important de- 
fense and foreign policy oriented 
works as Defense Facts of Life : The 
Plans/Reality Mismatch : Rolling 
Thunder : Understanding Policy and 
Program Failure : and Administrative 
Science and Politics in the US and 

Dr. Thompson was not only a 
scholar and noted political analyst, 
but an interesting and informative 
lecturer. As one student said, "Dr. 
Thompson was one of the most intel- 

ligent and energetic teachers I have 
ever had. I always left his classes 
wanting to learn more about whatever 
it was we were studying." Another 
student stated that his expertise in the 
field contributed to the quality of his 
lectures. "He always gave an ex- 
ample of something that he had actu- 
ally experienced in Washington. This 
made the material we were studying 
seem more real." 

Dr. Thompson exemplified all the 
chiiracteristicsofan excellent teacher; 
he sparked interest in his students. He 
will be sorely missed.

Adrienne Cregar 

President gives new life to sophomores 

"The problem of student apathy 
has always weighed heavily on my 
mind." In her two short years at 
UNCG, Adrienne Cregar has certainly 
done her part to curb the problem. As 
Sophomore Class Council President, 
Adrienne has invented many interest- 
ing projects aimed at getting sopho- 
mores more involved in extracurricu- 
lar activities. A Spanish and Business 
Management double major, she has 
somehow managed to find tiine to 
develop one of the school's most suc- 
cessful programs — the Sophomore of 
the Month. 

At the beginning of the year, 
Adrienne came up with the idea of an 
award recognizing sophomores who 
have made some contribution to the 

school. "'Students are able to nomi- 
nate themselves for the award, be- 
cause teachers do not always have 
time to recognize excellence outside 
of the classroom." The program also 
does not recognize only those stu- 
dents whoexcell in academics or those 
who are involved in several activities. 
"If a student is taking a full load while 
holding down an off-campus job, then 
he or she is eligible for the award." 
Adrienne feels that this is a way of 
getting all sophomores involved in 
campus life. "It serves as inspiration 
for the winning students to keep up 
the good work and incentive for other 
sophomores to strive for excellence." 
But this is not the only project 
Adrienne has been developing. Her 

main goal for the year is to get sopho- 
mores interested in meeting each 
other. She has plans to hold a Meet 
the Class Night at a local night club. 
"This is just a chance to let sopho- 
mores get to know other members of 
their class. Even if a tenth of the class 
showed up , it would be worthwhile." 
Adrienne has taken her new job 
very seriously. This is the first large 
scale leadership position she has ever 
held, but finds that this is the type of 
work she loves the most. She is pleased 
with the sucess of her programs, but 
will not rest untill she has fulfilled her 
goals. "The most important thing for 
me this year is doing a good job as 
Sophomore Class President."

Homecoming '88 

A good time was had by all 

Pumpkins, witches, and skeletons 
were the theme of UNCG's Home- 
coming '88, a combination Hallow- 
een extravaganza and celebration of 
school spirit. The chilly October 
weekend was characterized by mas- 
querade balls, concens, and rallys, 
building anticipation of the main 
event, the soccer game against the 
Davis and Elkins Senators, to a fever 

Thursday, October 27, the UNCG 
cheerleaders staged a pep rally and 
bonfire in the Quad, hoping to en- 
courage students to attend Saturday's 
game. Other events scheduled were 
the Mr. Homecoming Queen Contest, 
Bands From Around Campus, and, of 

course, the fireworks display, which 
shook the campus and lit the streets. 
Friday's main event was Judy 
Tenuta, that wacky comedienne 
known for her outrageous skits and 
commercials, who performed two 
shows in Elliot Center's Cone Ball- 
room. After her performance, Itza 
Pizza sponsored a Masquerade Ball, 
which invited students to wear their 
most unusual costumes. 

Saturday was "The Big Day," and 
began with the parade through the 
campus, ending at the soccer field. 
Students, faculty, and alumni cheered 
the Spartans to a 6-0 victory against 
Davis and Elkins, and welcomed a 
new Homecoming Queen. Madeline 

Shaw, an Early Childhood Education 
Major sponsored by Delta Sigma 
Theta, was crowned by last year's 
Queen Kimberlee Phillips. The run- 
ner-up was Jan Poindexter, sponsored 
by the Baptist Student Union. The 
show-stopping event of Saturday's 
festivities was the concert of Tyka 
Nelson, who is better known as 
Prince's sister, with opening act 
Marble Faun in Cone Ballroom. 

Sunday was a day of rest and recu- 
peration, with a picnic on College 
Avenue giving the students time to 
relax and discuss the successful events 
of the Homecoming weekend.

Take Back the Night 

Students join to fight a common enemy 

On Thursday, October 6, over 300 
people met in front of Elliot Univer- 
sity Center for what would perhaps 
become the most important protest 
UNCG has ever held. Take Back the 
Night, a candlelight vigil and march, 
was organized to raise awareness 
about the growing number of violent 
acts committed against women on 
this campus and others. It included 
students, both male and female, who 
want to alert the public about this 
alarming problem. 

"We wanted to bring attention to 
the danger on campus, and to show 
that something can be done about it, " 
said Nancy Carlson, a member of the 
Association for Women Students. The 
activists marched to locations which 

are said to be high risk areas for women 
walking alone at night. In fact, sev- 
eral of these areas are actual sites of 
sexual assaults. 

This protest was organized by 
Association for Women Students and 
Presbyterian Campus Ministry. Other 
organizations participating in the 
event Alpha Phi Omega, Alpha Kappa 
Delta, Baptist Campus Ministry, 
Panhellenic Council, Presbyterian 
Campus Ministry, United Methodist 
and Lutheran Campus Ministries, 
Social Work Student Organization, 
Sociology Clubs, St. Mary's Episco- 
pal Ministry, Women Studies Fac- 
ulty, University Catholic Center, and 
the Baptist Student Union. 

The large number of people who 

participated in the event was encour- 
aging to the sponsors, considering the 
amount of women who are still un- 
aware as to the extent of the problem, 
and continue to walk unlit streets

Student Escort Service 

... Mi 


Helping women protect themselves 

The UNCG Student Escort Serv- 
ice is a safe, free alternative to walk- 
ing alone at night on campus. For all 
female students who are forced to be 
out at night, the escort service pro- 
vides transponation from any place 
on campus to another, and is essen- 
tially the best deierant to the rapes and 
assaults that could potentially occur 
to lone walkers in the dark. 

There are two escon vans and five 
escort drivers. The escorts, three males 
and two females, are on duty seven 
days a week from 5:30 pm. unti: 1:00 
am. Although they are given no "spe- 
cial" training such as in first aid or 
self-defense, they are required to 
obtain a Class-B drivers license, which 
allows them to operate a van intended 

for the transport of several individu- 
als. The escorts are paid for their 
services; they are not volunteers. It is 
comprised entirely of UNCG students. 
It is a regular campus job, and they 
take their positions very seriously. 
"Having the escort service deters the 
percentage of rapes and harrass- 
ments," says escort Bob Williams. 

But the escorts don't take it so se- 
riously that it isn't fun. According to 
Williams, the job is really great. "It's 
enjoyable, its not boring, and you get 
to meet a lot of people." It can be fun 
for the women as well; they can call 
and request their favorite escort. 

Its main function, however, is the 
protection of women. The escort serv- 
ice is directed solely at female stu- 

dents. Males are not picked up by the 
service except in the case of handicap 
of injury. One of its most positive 
aspects is its ability to cut substan- 
tially the number of assaults on cam- 
pus. Female students are encouraged 
not to walk alone at night, since it is 
an open invitation for attack. To pre- 
vent these assaults, they offer yet 
another service, the walking escort. 
If, for example, a woman is suidying 
in the library, she can call the service, 
and an escort will accompany her to 
her dorm or carwhen she is through. 
The number of the Student Escort 
Service is 334-5963 — a number which 
all campus women should learn by

Changing the structure of The Cary 

Perhaps the most difficuh task 
that Barbie Verne has taken on this 
year is the position of editor-in-chief 
for the university newspaper,r/;e 
Carolinian., This is because the defi- 
nition of editor is undergoing transi- 
tion. Barbie is the first business major 
to hold the position of editor, and she 
is trying to meet the challenge of re- 
definition of the role. "What the 
[media] board wants is to establish 
the position of editor as a manager 
instead of a copy editor." The editor' s 
of the past have been invovled with 
every facet of the paper, from repon- 
ing to layout. But Barbie's goal is to 
add some organization to the paper, 
giving more responsibility to other 
positions on the staff. The Media 

Board is also encouraging her to set 
up standard operating procedures for 
the paper that can be used from year to 

After the previous editor was 
replaced, Barbie was hired to take 
over his job. She began after the 
semester was already underway to 
find incomplete paperwork and dis- 
organization. "Taking over was the 
hardest thing I've ever done. But it's 
been an invaluable experience, be- 
cause I'll have to face this situation 
again sometime." Barbie is trying to 
get away from any type of political 
slant that The Carolinian may have 
had in the past. "We're trying to 
present the news; not just campus 
news but community and worldwide 

news as well. 

Barbie is a business man- 
agement major with the hopes of 
going into some son of media man- 
agement, preferably broadcasting. 
She worked for two years on her high 
school paper,serving one year as edi- 
tor. So, the newspaper business is one 
of the options she has open for her 
future. " What I'd really like to be is a 
C.O.E.: a chief office executive." 
She laughs at her own words, perhaps 
because she is already on her way 
there. She is definitely meeting the 
challenge of laying the groundwork 
for a more efficiently run newspaper. 
She shrugs her shoulders and says: 
"What I really am is a manager."

Eddie Taylor 

Giving Greeks a good name 

Just because Eddie Taylor is in his 
second year as president of the Inter- 
fraternity Council, don't expect the 
same old stuff. Eddie's plans for the 
IFC are bigger than ever and he's 
taking all the actions he can to make 
them work. One of his biggest proj- 
ects is increasing fraternity Rush, the 
process of recruiting pledges, by fifty 
percent. He would also like to make 
the entire system more accesible to all 
the students. IFC serves as a link be- 
tween the fraternities, a unity which 
Eddie finds important. "I think this 
campus is unique in the fact that we 
don 't have a rivalry between fraterni- 

Ideally, Rush would be held in a 

neutral area such as Elliot University 
Center. Each fraternity would be 
assigned a lounge, so each group of 
men seeking tojoin a fraternity would 
be exposed to all of the fraternities at 
once, and hopefully find the one that 
best suits his needs. Another project 
Eddie is working on is an improve- 
ment of faculty/student relations. This 
relationship between the university 
staff and the fraternities is, according 
to Eddie, one of the factors which de- 
cides the success of a Greek system 
on college campuses. 

There is a lot of tedious work sur- 
rounding his job, but his involvement 
with his fraternity. Lambda Chi Al- 
pha, and with the incoming freshmen 

outweighs the negative. " I really just 
like the people — working on getting 
new people invovled. I've seen firesh- 
men come in, get invovled with a fra- 
ternity, and discover a whole new 
world, and they grow and blossom. 
It's really incredible!" The fraternity 
experience can be a very positive 
thing, despite the negative attitudes 
some people project toward the 
Greeks. He disagrees with the stere- 
otypes associated with fraternities, one 
of the myths which he hopes to de- 
stroy as IFC President. "People make 
groups, groups don't make people." 
Eddie Taylor' s attitude indeed proves 
that he's not up to the same old stuff.

Jane Davenport 

The guiding light of the UMB 

Jane Davenport is a name most 
students find unfamiliar, but one 
which is known by every staff mem- 
ber of UNCG's three student publica- 
tions. For three years, she has been 
the brains behind the University Media 
Board, making sure that each publica- 
tion is run as efficiently as possible. 
As UMB Business Manager, Jane is 
the person in charge of all contractual 
and financial matters which involve 
the publications. 

"My main job is overseeing the 
budgets, and keeping tabs on the fi- 
nance. I work with the editors, help- 
ing them run the organizations and 
manage the payrolls." Any editor 
would say that this is an understate- 
ment. Jane is rujl a secretary, taking 

phone messages and scheduling ap- 
pointments. She is an advisor who 
provides the leadership that guides 
the Media Board, and a mentor who 
patiently steers the inexperienced 
students through unexpected business 
problems. "I teach the students how 
to run things." 

Teaching is something which Jane 
knows much about. She majored in 
Early Childhood Educatfon, a degree 
which she obtained from UNCG in 
the late 70's. After teaching for four 
years, she eventually ended up as 
UMB Business Manager, but finds 
that she can never really leave her 
major behind. "My degree in educa- 
tion has helped me understand stu- 
dents better. It has a defin i te effect on 

my job now." 

Jane has noted a change in the 
makeup of the student body in the last 
ten years; "The students I come in 
contact with are more involved, and 
more interested in being involved. 
They care about the campus." 

The most enjoyable part of Jane's 
job is the people. "I really love work- 
ing with the students." She does work 
with them on a close basis everyday. 
She provides an invaluable service to 
those who work for the publications, 
and does so without much recogni- 
tion. As one student said, "She serves 
as an educator, not just a business

Kip Caudle 

The watchful eye of the UMB chairman 

"My style is hands-on. I don't like 
to sit around and philosophize about 
something; I'd rather go out and do 
it," says University Media Board 
Chairman Kip Caudle. Since his 
appointment last spring. Kip has 
managed to turn the position into a 
full time job, spending at least 30 
hours in his office per week. "It takes 
a lot of work!" 

As UMB Chairman, Kip is re- 
sponsible for publishing, as well as 
keeping careful track of the three 
student publications. "I set the direc- 
tion that the board will go in to pub- 
lish the three mediums." Every other 
Wenesday, Kip holds meetings with 
the voting members of the Board: 
three faculty advisors, three at-large 

student representatives, and the edi- 
tors from each medium. Also present 
in the meetings are Jane Davenport, 
UMB Business Manager, and Jim 
Lancaster, Assistant Vice Chancellor 
for Student Affairs. The group dis- 
cusses the progress of the publica- 
tions, and helps each editor organize 
his area more efficiently. 

"We have committees that study 
different projects, such as the com- 
puters we're putting in all the of- 
fices." Kip has been instrumental in 
the advent of desktop publishing to 
UNCG's three publications. He has 
somehow managed, with limited fi- 
nancial resources, to put a computer 
in every office and place two comput- 
ers for the use of the writers and 

editors in the new Elliot labs. "The 
lab compliments what we have in the 

Kip doesn't have much free time; 
between working at the UMB office 
and keeping up with his classes, he is 
a very busy man. But as a manage- 
ment marketing major, he finds that 
he is learning things now that will 
help him in the real world. "I try to be 
involved with the Media Board as 
much as I possibly can." Except on 
Wednesday nights, when Kip can be 
found sipping on his favorite bever- 
age at College Hill Bar.

Jeff Hibbard 


New kid on the block makes a splash 

Since arriving at UNCG in Au- 
gust, Jeff Hibbard has certainly made 
his presence known. He has not only 
been active in the school's Attorney 
General's office, but he has performed 
in one of the schools most successful 

As far as Jeff is concerned, the 
functions of the Attorney General's 
office is one of the most important 
services that the school offers. "We 
act as legal assistants for the students, 
representing them in hearings. We 
make sure that they are aware of their 
rights before and during the hearing." 
Part of this process includes inform- 
ing these students who have violated 
the guidelines set by Residence Life, 
or who have broken more serious 


rules set by the administration, what 
will take place during the hearing. 
Jeff views himself as a collegiate ver- 
sion of a public defender. He enjoys 
learning about the legal system, a 
process which he finds extremely 

Interesting is certainly the word 
for Jeff's background. As a trumpet 
majorat the Berklee College of Music, 
Jeff performed with professional thea- 
ters in Boston on a regular basis. His 
most memorable performance, how- 
ever, was a benefit concert he per- 
formed in Hartford, Connecticut with 
Ray Charles. "I still haven't cashed 
the check he gave me, because it has 
his signature on it." He also played in 
the East Carolina University Sym- 

phony for the Charles Kuralt special 
"North Carolina is My Home." After 
transfering here in the fall, he imme- 
diately auditioned for aplace in the pit 
during the Theater Department's 
production of "Bye, Bye Birdie," and, 
of course, wound up as first chair. 

A Political Science major now, 
Jeff hopes that after graduate school 
he can embark in a career with the 
military, or obtain a position with the 
Federal Government. But right now, 
while he is juggling his job at the 
library, his work for the Attorney 
General's office, and his musical ca- 
reer, Jeff is concerned with finishing 
school: "I just want to graduate some- 
time before 1999!"

iWUAG-Music 103 


ihe music 103— • 

Progressive music for progressive minds 

WUAG, the UNCG radio sta- 
tion, funded by the student activity 
fee and staffed by students, is a non- 
profit organization. Its repertoire of 
music is contributed by various rec- 
ord companies in the form of promo- 
tional music. 

The beauty of our campus sta- 
tion, and a major source of the staffs 
satisfaction, is that it is a forum for 
popularizing relatively unknown 
bands which are on the way up the 
music hierarchy. As Program Direc- 
tor John Peele says, unlike many sta- 
tions, WUAG "pushes certain anists 

i that would not (otherwise) be played 
on the radio" These include small 

j groups that are still getting estab- 


WUAG is known to play the 
music ofmany Triad bands. Songs by 
bands such as Mojosa, The Graphic, 
and HayM;u"ket Riot are played on 
occasion and even by request, a serv- 
ice which WUAG graciously offers 
to its listeners. One band which has 
gained popularity by air play on 
WUAG and other university radio 
stations is the now successful REM. 
Our campus station promoted the 
group's music when they were a 
unknown club band with a small, but 
faithful following. 

But WUAG doesn't only help 
new bands break into show business. 
For those students who are not par- 

ticuku'ly fond of the progressive for- 
mat, WUAG offers a variety of spe- 
cialty shows, featuring country mu- 
sic, heavy metal, classic rock and roll, 
and jazz. 

Because of the young, open- 
minds that fomi a university student 
body, WUAG is a perfect stage for the 
play of new and radical styles of 
music. Whether these styles are ab- 
stract, tacky, beautiful, cynical, pure, 
or fine-tuned, it is the criticism and 
approval listeners which new bands 
rely on for the success or refinement 
of their music. This is the job that the 
Music 103 has undertaken.

The man at the helm of UNCG 

The Student Government at UNCG 
is a vital part of the university As in 
our national government's set-up, the 
Student Government Organization 
has three divisions: the executive, leg- 
islative, and judicial branches. And at 
the executive level, Philip Henderson 
is the man-at arms. 

As Student Body President, Phil is 
basically in control of all the levels, 
seeing that they are running smoothly. 
As an effective middleman between 
the students and the administration, 
Phil serves on the Board of Trustees 
to represent students and their opin- 
ions at the highest level. 

"If I am not able to handle some- 
thing accurately myself, I get on the 
phone to someone who can!" Phil is 

in charge of $120,000, and it is his 
duty to see that it is spent efficiently. 
The Student Escort Service and about 
15 other organizations are often pro- 
vided with a percentage of this money. 
This gives students a chance to get 
involved with campus activities, a 
chance they would not have if not for 
the Student Government. 

One of the most important points 
about the Student Government is the 
fact that students can voice their opin- 
ions to a peer, and have that com- 
plaint transfered to a higher level. "If 
anyone has a complaint or problem 
with something, then all he has to do 
is see me or Vice President Annette 
Privette, and we will do something 
about it," says Phil. The student lead- 

ers, because of their close proximity 
to the faculty and administration, can 
express the opinions of the student 
body, and get something done. 

Phil sees the bodies as a vital part 
of student life, not just forthe campus 
as a whole, but for individual situ- 
ations as well. By coordinating the 
individual class elections with that of 
the Legislative Assembly and the At- 
torney General's office, Phil adds a 
new dimension to the school. He 
gives the students a chance to be heard 
in a system where they are sometimes 
overlooked. "That's basically what 
we're here for — the students of

Involvement—the spice of student life 

"People should realize that this is 
more than a title," says Student Body 
Vice-President Annette Privette. 
Since taking over the office in Au- 
gust, she has managed not only to get 
together a full Student Assembly, but 
to organize the seven sub-committees 
and 14 organizations into active stu- 
dent groups. Annette has shown that 
her job is not simply a formality. 

One of the areas that Annette finds 
room for serious improvement is the 
issue of the student ' s lack of involve- 
ment. "I'd like to see the attitude on 
campus change, and promote school 
spirit. Out of the 10,000 students at 
the school, only about 100 do any- 
thing. The same group of people does 
; the same things." She feels that part 

of the whole college experience rests 
on the extent to which the student par- 
ticipates in campus life. "This cam- 
pus has a lot," she asserts. "Don't 
settle for just going to class and back 
home." Annette has always found it 
important to be involved at school. "I 
have to find something or I'll go 

When she first came here, she was 
involved with the UNCG School of 
Nursing, which is among the best in 
the state. But she soon found that she 
was better suited for something less 
emotionally draining. "I began to 
care too much for the patients." 
Annette chose Enghsh and public 
relations becauseof the numberof job 
opportunities the double major would 

give her. She hopes that after gradu- 
ation, she can begin a career and at- 
tend Graduate School part-time. 

Annette has little free time, but on 
those precious few moments when 
she does, she enjoys sports, reading, 
cross-stitching, and music. "I 'm a big 
Bruce Springsteen fan. I camped out 
for tickets to his concert, and even 
cried when he got married!" 

For those students who are consid- 
ering running for the office in the 
future, she has this advice: "You need 
to be a people lover and a hard worker." 
Since becoming the newest UNCG 
Vice-President, Annette has certainly 
proven that she is both.

To sleep-perchance to dream 

When I asked Melissa Deas about 
the hobbies she enjoys, she replied in 
typical good humor, "Sleep!" Be- 
sides being president of the Neo-Black 
Society, she is manager of The Ye 
Olde Sweet Shoppe, which is located 
in Elliot University Center, and is 
active in her sorority. Delta Sigma 
Theta — not to mention holding down 
another part-time job at one of 
Greensboro's finer fast-food restau- 
rants. She quite possibly hold the 
auspicious title of "Busiest Woman 
on Campus." 

Melissa is a senior, majoring in 
Political Science, and when she gradu- 
ates next fall she plans to return home 
to Charlotte to work on a Master's 
degree in Public Affairs at UNCC. 

But right now, her most important 
concern is getting the NBS into the 
mainstream of the university. She 
coordinates the group's dance troup 
and choir, and invites guest lecturers 
to speak at the weekly meetings, which 
are of interest to all students. As 
Melissa says, the NBS "is not just for 
blacks. It's for anybody." She also 
hopes that under her leadership, the 
NBS can win this year's Human Re- 
lations Award. Melissa is completely 
dedicated to her work; she wants the 
group to be taken seriously and con- 
sidered an important part of UNCG 
student life. 

Considering her active extracur- 
ricular lifestyle, I wondered how 
Melissa ever found time to maintain a 

high grade point average. She is a 
very serious student, and with thoughts 
of graduate school at the top of the 
list, she obviously must make time to 
study. I asked her how she did it. 
"Time management, "she said. When 
I asked her what part of her life she 
was forced to sacrifice, she elabo- 
rated: "I find less time for sleep." Of

Special Collections 

The icing on the cake 

Quietly tucked away on the sec- 
ond floor of the main portion of 
Jackson Library is a world in which 
students can find over 20,000 vol- 
umes of rare documents, such as a 
1731 book on the techniques of dance 
and the personal papers of the founder 
and first President of the school, 
Charles D. Mclver. Special Collec- 
tions is one of the richest parts of 
UNCG, housing a selection of books 
and manuscripts that would not ordi- 
1 narily be available for student use. 

"It enriches the experience stu- 
dents can have using resource materi- 
als," says Special Collecnons Librar- 
ian Emilie Mills. "It is unusual to find 
in most schools this size a Special 
Collection as big as this." The num- 

ber of volumes housed in the collec- 
tion, when added to the manuscripts 
in the University Archives, totals over 
1 million. 

The earliest book that the collec- 
tion owns dates back to about 1470. 
Because of the fragility of the older 
volumes, several of them have been 
restored, keeping as much of the au- 
thenticity as possible. Some of the 
books are engraved with lead plates 
and a few of the pictures are illus- 
trated with gold and lapis lazuli. 

The collection does not, however, 
stop at manuscripts from other centu- 
ries. Housed in this section are many 
of the rare books and notes of re- 
spected twentieth century poet and 
critic Randall Jarrell, who was a pro- 

fessor at UNCG for many years. Also 
in the collection is a large selection of 
books by noted women detective 
writers, and a variety of books for 

Mills suggests that this portion of 
the library opens up a new avenue for 
students who are looking for interest- 
ing material for research papers. 
Several professors elect to take their 
classes on a tour of the collection, 
because it represents a part of history 
that might otherwise go unnoticed. It 
is open to any student who would like 
to brouse this most facinating selec- 
tion of writings. As Mills says, "Its 

the icing on the cake."

Sororities—not just a place to party 

"Its important for people to re- 
member that there are larger reasons 
for being in a sorority. Its not just a 
place to party, " says Jane McFarland 
Panhellenic President. Taking over 
the job of managing the five social 
sororities on campus, which consists 
of about 250 women, is not an easy 
job. But Jane has given new life to the 
groups, and has helped to transform 
the image of the typical sorority girl 
into one which portrays an active and 
intelligent campus woman. 

"There's a larger part of the soror- 
ity past the social part. For me, the 
social part has become very small as 
I have gotten older." Jane tends to be 
bothered by the image of the sorority 
girl who is only concerned with par- 


ties, because it is very misleading. 
The Panhellenic Council is trying hard 
to lose this reputation. "Its really a 
place on campus where a large group 
of women learn to govern themselves 
and to take leadership positions." 

Jane manages to find some time to 
be active in her sorority. Phi Mu. She 
serves as the Chaplain, and is in charge 
of the religious part of the group's 
ceremonies. She feels that she has 
grown since joining. "I get a lot out of 
the fellowship aspect of the group." 
An English major with a Political 
Science minor, Jane thinks that she 
has found her niche for the future. 
"I've discovered that I think I'd like to 
do what I'm doing right now, which 
would entail personnel type manage- 

ment." She enjoys watching over 
groups of people, making sure that 
everyone is doing his job or project 
correctly. "I like being in charge of a 
larger picture." 

If there is anything Jane would 
like to see eliminated, it would be the 
negative attitude people have against 
sororities. She insists that part of the 
problem is that Greek women are not 
able to convey that message to the 
entire campus. That is where the 
Panhellenic Council finds its biggest 
job. "We need to let people know we 
do things other than party."

A night that will live in infamy 

Weird costumes, bizzare hairsty- 
les, spoolcy disguises. it just an- 
other day on Tate Street? Probably, 
but on October 31, 1988, there was 
reason beyond simple social devia- 
tion for these get-ups. Halloween hit 
UNCG with a bang, not a wimper, not 
only because it was coupled with the 
excitement of Homecoming, but be- 
cause it provided a socially accept- 
able reason for looking strange. 

As far as costumes were concerned, 
some people opted for the traditional: 
witches, demons, and of course, the 
most recent favorite, the serial mass 
murderer. But some of the more re- 
fined individuals chose characters 
with more dignity. The Wife of Bath, 
Chaucer's most beloved gap-toothed 

character, appeared at one local hot- 
spot. These creative fits were over- 
shadowed, however, by less intellec- 
tual pursuits, such as the inevitable 
flower child costume or the human 
condom. Most people took the easy 
way out and appeared as the ghost of 

And were there parties? Celebra- 
tions of this once pagan ritual? It was 
a veritable potpourri of festive events 
for the socially-minded young col- 
lege student. Specially concocted 
"Demon Brew" was on hand at some 
of these occasions, while other gath- 
erings chose the less complicated nec- 
tar of the Gods — beer. Some of these 
get-togethers even gave prizes for the 
most unusually clad participant, hop- 

ing a cash incentive would spark the 
interests of party seekers. 

But there was one gathering, which 
some would even consider evil, that 
was avoided by most students at all 
costs. It featured some of the most 
scary, nay frightening, individuals on 
campus. They met in one large build- 
ing to discuss their plan to take over 
the known world. Their Halloween 
was characterized by thoughts too 
evil to mention; the most terrifying of 
all nights was the perfect time to 
discuss their master plan. Luckily, at 
the bewitching hour, the stroke of 
midnight, Jackson Library closed, and 
the graduate students were forced to 
break their covenant once again.

Student group promotes Democrat's cause 

For students interested in politics 
and the suppon of the Democratic 
party, the UNCG College Democrats 
is an on-campus, organized group 
directed toward students who wish to 
become involved. The group is open 
to all students, and is led by President 
Stacey McLendon. Other officers are 
Christine Moore, Robin Shafer, and 
Paul Sherrill. All student Democrats 
are encouraged to join. They meet the 
first Wednesday of each month at 
8:00pm in EUC. 

The CD's, according to Stacey, 
support the local Democratic leaders, 
do volunteer work for the local 
Democratic headquarters, deliver lit- 
erature, and in this election year, help 
with voter registration and voting in 

Aycock Auditorium. They also do 
phone-banking, which involves call- 
ing people at random and asking 
questions concerning the election. In 
order to promote their group, the CD's 
put out posters and fliers inviting all 
students to get involved. 

CD provides an organization for 
students interested in Democratic 
politics. "We provide a place for 
Democrats to meet," says McLen- 
don. "It's nice to know that there are 
others around who stand for the same 
things you do." CD provides a go- 
between for students who would like 
to get involved locally, but aren't sure 
exactly how to go about getting in- 
volved, McLendon adds. 
She says the CD's are disappointed 

about the outcome of the recent elec- 
tions, presidential and gubernatorial. 
"Bob Jordan did a lot of work running 
the state. Jim Martin was basically a 
sitting Governor." George Bush in 
office scares her because, among 
other things, he stands to reverse the 
Roe vs. Wade decision and lacks 
commitment to the environment. 
"Democrats," she adds, "are commit- 
ted to the environment, to education, 
to social services, and to peace by 
peace, not peace by strength." 

In closing, Stacy advises all stu- 
dents to get involved in the election 
process. "Get out and vote, become 
involved. Don't think your vote 
doesn't count. It does."

University Libertarians 

Protecting the rights of American citizens 

"I'm not an idealist. I don't be- 
lieve a Utopia can exist. You can't 
hope for that; but you can hope for the 
closest thing, which are basic human 
rights — to be left alone to do what 
want to do without hurting anyone 
else. That type of society will work." 
IfBill Greene, founder of the Univer- 
sity Libertarians, had been bom over 
two-hundred years ago, he probably 
would have been fighting beside our 
forefathers for those world famous 
inalienable rights. 

It is obvious to Bill that many of 
today's issues, such as abortion and 
censorship, are threatening the basic 
fiber of our nation. "What the Liber- 
tarians are saying is that we need to 
get back to what our founding fathers 

were talking about. The purpose of 
government is to protect the rights 
and liberties of its citizens, and to 
protect them from force or fraud, 
another individual, or another group 
or country. That's the purpose, pe- 

Bill, a graduate student, felt he 
could make a difference in the fight 
for human rights. In the fall of 1987, 
he started the University Libertari- 
ans. By holding forums and discus- 
sions, he's trying to introduce the 
Libertarian ideas into the system. He 
defines their beliefs as, "the right todo 
what you want to do with your own 
body and property, as long as you 
don't use force or aggression against 
anyone, or try to deny them their 

rights. It's pretty much a live and let 
live attitude." 

Bill is firm believer in those rights 
which society takes for granted. I 
asked Bill what he believes in most 
strongly. He replied, with a thought- 
ful look in his eyes: "I believe very 
much in human beings, and human 
beings make mistakes. But they've 
got to be allowed to. That's how you 
learn and get ahead. In today's soci- 
ety there's no room for mistakes. You 
know the best quote I've ever seen is 
on the wall in EUC by Harriet Elliot 
and it says, 'People, not systems are 
important.' I truly believe that."

Student Assembly 



Mcf^ #2A 

eoi^e Bus 




Spreading the word of the GOP 

The Republican Student Assem- 
bly at UNCG is not just another po- 
litical group. They are an organiza- 
tion of young adults who strive to en- 
courage political awareness and help 
to illustrate what the Republican party 
is all about. Anyone can join; they 
want as many people as possible to be 
involved. It is a great way to meet 
people and learn about the Republi- 
can pany and its leaders. 

The 1988 Republican presidential 
winner is George Bush, and the as- 
sembly is behind him all the way. 
The assembly's chairperson, Andrea 
Coulter, speaks for all when she says 
that Bush has great leadership ability. 
She is very confident Bush will con- 
tinue the many policies already 

established by the Reagan admini- 

But the assembly is not only inter- 
ested in the presidential election. On 
a local level, the assembly works to 
elect other Republican officials to of- 
fice. Congressman Howard Coble 
was actually a guest speaker at 
UNCG, and held a debate with Tom 
Gilmore. The assembly had mem- 
bers working in the campaign offices 
of Coble, Jim Gardner, and President 

There are thiny very active mem- 
bers this year. Some will attend the 
North Carolina Federation of College 
Republican's convention. Many have 
attended a Republican rally in Win- 
ston-Salem, and some were even part 

of a commercial for Congressman 
Howard Coble. The commercial was 
filmed at Guilford College, Coble's 
alma mater. 

Ms. Coulter gives much credit to 
the group's large membership to their 
advisors. Chuck Moyer and John Fitz- 
gerald. But the officers defmately play 
a key role in the Assembly. Benny 
Brown, Caroline Henderson, Sue 
Cullom,and Coulter each contribute 
to the group's overwhelming suc- 
cess. The assembly meetings are set 
every other Tuesday night in EUC, 
and they welcome any and all to be a 
part ofthis Republican Organization.

Republicans score big in North Carolina 

On Novetnber 8, 1988, George 
Bush won all but 12 states and cap- 
tured 54% of the popular vote, beat- 
ing Massachusetts Governor Michael 
Dukakis, and insuring himself a place 
in history as the 4 1st president. Bush, 
who won all of North Carolina's 13 
electoral votes and 59% of the popu- 
lar vote, received the good news from 
his home in Houston, Texas. Bush, 
and Vice President Dan Quayle, will 
step into the Oval Office on January 
20, 1989. This gives the Republican 
party another term in the White 
House. Pleased Republicans feel that 
Bush's victory will give continuity to 
Reagan's policies developed for the 
past eight years. 

Bush was not the only Republican 

candidate to score big in the elections. 
On the local level, Governor Jim 
Manin was re-elected for a second 
term, easily defeating Lt. Governor 
Bob Jordan. Martin picked up 56% of 
the vote, riding on the coattails of the 
Bush victory. 

Other important North Carolina 
seats were also gained by Republi- 
cans. Jim Gardner narrowly defeated 
Democrat Tony Rand in a close race 
for Lt. Governor, squeaking by with 
51% of the vote. Howard Coble, in 
the election for the 6th District seat 
for the U. S. House of Representa- 
tives, won a hands-down victory over 
Tom Gilmore. Winning 62% of the 
vote. Coble insured his third two-year 
term in Congress. 

Overall, voter turnout in North 
Carolina was surprisingly good. In 
Guilford County, some people waited 
in lines, extending as far as the eye 
could see, for almost three hours. 
Officials blamed the lengthy wait on 
lack of voting machines. 

The American people proved by 
their support of Bush that they wanted 
four more years of Republican rule in 
theWhite House, butpre-election pub- 
licity indicated that they were wary of 
Bush's choice for running mate.

Arts and Sciences- covering the spectrum 

If you haven't had Dr. Julian 
Lombardi for a biology class, then 
perhaps you've seen him around 
campus or on the stage. Dr. Lombardi 
does more than just teach and re- 
search. He has acted in commercials, 
performed in different theatre groups, 
and directed such companies as The 
Transactors Theatre of Carrboro. He 
also started his own mime company 
while in graduate school. The sum- 
mer before Lombardi joined the UNC- 
G faculty, he had a leading role in the 
Burlington Gallery Players produc- 
tion of Gilbert and Sullivan's H.M.S. 
Pinnafore . 

Why is this very artistic man teach- 
ing biology and not theatre classes? 

At the same time Dr. Lombardi was 
cultivating his love for the theatre, he 
was also busy exploring the floor of 
the sea. He started scuba diving at 
fourteen, and has been pursuing and 
expanding his two passions ever since. 
"Everyone must have vocation and 
avocation. If your work is all you 
have, if it's your life, then you are a 
sadly inadequate person." 

Dr. Lombardi is just beginning his 
third year here at UNC-G, which 
appears to be his busiest. He is cur- 
rently working on three different 
project, one of which is from UNCG 
developing software which would 
aid the anatomy classes. But research 
is only part of his job. He also has 

classes to teach. 'T like teaching and I 
like research. They're pretty equal." 
He likes the interaction with students 
and finds those who don't want to 
learn very frustrating. "Most kid come 
to college because that's what they've 
been told they were going to do from 
a very young age." 

Dr. Lombardi seems to have cov- 
ered all his bases: he combines love of 
the arts with science, and love of 
students with research, a task which is 
necessity. "It keeps both parts of my 
brain going."

Recreation- another dimension in education 

If you ask Dr. Ellen Greaves what 
her hobbies are, she would probably 
smile and say "sports." Of course! 
She has been the Campus Recreation 
Director at UNCG for eleven years, a 
job she thoroughly enjoys for specific 
reasons. "It may sound trite, but it's 
the students. That's why I'm here." 
After meeting and talking to Dr. 
Greaves, two things become appar- 
ent: her sense of humor and her 
concern and respect for the students. 
She truly believes in exposing stu- 
dents to new modes of physical activ- 
ity. "I believe that sports, physical 
activity, and having fun are essential 
to the human spirit. You don't have to 
be an Olympic star to enjoy sports." 

Dr. Greaves grew up in suburban 
Chicago, whereshe became hooked 
on sports: every child is active in 
physical education from grades one 
through twelve. She taught physical 
education in the public schools for 
awhile, but decided to go back to 
school and get her master and doc- 
toral degrees. 

She was offered this job during 
the last year of writing her disserta- 
tion. One of the problems she has 
come across here is the facilities. "Pro- 
viding quality service with limited 
facilities is a drawback." One of the 
projects that she is pursuing is a 
campus recreation facility which 
would offer to the students sports that 

are not available now on campus. 

Dr. Greaves smiles and laughs a 
lot, but as for providing quality edu- 
cation and recreational opportunity 
for the students, she's quite serious. 
"I believe that the human being exists 
in a very complex way and anything 
to the exclusion of anotherdimension 
of what a person is capable of is not 
representative of sound development." 
And that includes sports. Of course!

Mr. Nicholas Oglesby 

Helping students cope with the real world 

Retired from the insurance busi- 
ness, Nicholas P. Oglesby came to 
UNCG four years ago to razzle-dazzle 
the business depanment with his fi- 
nancial expertise. He brought years 
of business experience and financial 
know-how that sparked new life to 
the Finance classes. And since his 
appointment to UNCG, he has taught 
these classes with his own style and 

For business majors, he teaches 
the Principles of Risk and Insurance. 
This course helps educate potential 
businessmen and women in the man- 
agement of risk in relation to the role 
of insurance. 

For non-business, he teaches Per- 

sonal Financial Planning, a class 
which Mr. Oglesby calls, "a unique 
opportunity for learning thingsyou're 
going to need." It deals with every- 
thing from managing taxes to manag- 
ing personal checking accounts, and 
Mr. Oglesby draws on his personal 
experience to relate the importance of 
financial planning. 

"This is the most essential class 
anyone can have because we talk about 
the real world and things that really 
exist." Finance 300 should be taken 
by everyone, he says, because its les- 
sons are invaluable. 

While working for Prudential and 
Jefferson Pilot Insurance Companies, 
he was not only a salesman but a 

teacher as well, keeping those he 
worked with educated to the changes 
and turnovers in the insurance world. 
Mr. Oglesby and his wife, 
Rosalyn, have been married for 43 
years. They have four children — 
three girls and a boy — and six grand- 
children. He graduated from the Uni- 
versity of Virginia in 1950 with a BS 
in Commerce. Greensboro has been 
his home for eighteen years. 

For kids entering the job market, 
Mr. Oglesby offers this advice: "Pre- 
tend you make less than you do; set 
aside something you can invest."

Dr. Stuart Allen 

Improving the quality of education 

"Take the best courses under the 
best professors in a variety of depart- 
ments to get a broad liberal arts back- 
ground," advises Dr. Stuart Allen, 
professor of Economics. Since com- 
ing to UNCG twelve years ago, Dr. 
Allen has come to many conclusions 
not only concerning the state of the 
educational system, but methods in 
which he can improve it. 

"I think the educational system is 
not doing the job that it should be 
doing." He feels that one of the prob- 
lems he encounters while teaching is 
the growing amount of cultural illiter- 
acy. "I can't assume that my students 
know the presidential party of some 
of our presidents." He has begun to 
encorporate more dates and to place 

more emphasis on history, hoping to 
bring students up to par. "If you sit 
down and look at the way we bring up 
our kids, what they're taking in on the 
television, what's going on in they're 
brains, there'sprobably less of a foun- 
dation then there was 20 years ago." 
As far as doing well in class is 
concerned. Dr. Allen has well-defined 
views. He feels that the large number 
of non-traditional students has less- 
ened the amount of "bull sessions" 
before exams. Students who cannot 
verbalize their thoughts on econom- 
ics, or any other subject, cannot ob- 
tain a full grasp of the material. "If 
you don't discuss economics, you're 
not going to write it well." But since 
the role of the student has changed in 

the last few decades, the way they 
study has been forced to be modified. 

After hours, Dr. Allen finds that 
coaching soccer is the most enjoyable 
form of relaxation, and a great way to 
spend time with his three kids. "It is 
my hobby — what I do for my chil- 
dren, but as much for myself." He 
loves the thrill of victory, but feels 
that learning to work in a group is 
most important lesson children learn 
by participating in athletics. 

Dr. Allen show his committment 
to the educational system not only 
through his classroom work, but by 
providing a stimulating learning en- 
vironment. Dr. Allen goes one step 
beyond lecturing-he teaches.

Women's soccer 


Spartan's first season a winning one 

UNCG's vvonien's soccer team 
had an exciting first Near on the pitch. 
Coach Jack Poland, after 13 months 
of recruiting soccer players, planning 
practice, and scheduling games de- 
signed a team that produced a win- 
ning season for the newest Spartan 
team. In the recnuting area, Poland 
took on the challenge of expansion, 
but not building from ground zero. 
Coach Poland said, "I think of it in 
terms of expandnig an already strong 

Poland was hired in 1987 as the 
first women's soccercoach of UNCG. 
He then began to make phone calls, 
take road trips, and put together a 
team which would be ranked 13th in 
the NCAA Division II at the stan of 

the NS-(S'-) season. Polanil is assisieil 
b\ .\Iarcia McDermott, a three-year 
starting mid-fielder for UNC Chapel 
Hill. "Marcia is an exceptional role 
model for our players. She was an ex- 
emplary student athlete and is as in- 
tense about the game of soccer as any 
person I've ever seen." said Coach 

Dunng recruiting, Poland knew 
he would be competing for girls who 
had heard from top .soccer schools 
such NCAA Division I and II pro- 
grams as UNC-CH and Barry Univer- 
sity. He knew what he wanted and 
needed in his .soccer club; by having 
the excellent reputation of the men's 
team he had part of the battle con- 

By the time signing day (April 13) 
tor recruits came, Poland had signed 
the majority of his scholarship play- 
ers and several of the other players 
had agreed to walk-on. With pre- 
season camp and a busy summer 
schedule left to happen, he waited on 
the uniforms and the players. He 
knew what had to be accomplished, 
and he and his new team accomplished 
It by ending their first winning season 
with a record of 10-7-0. 

The Lady Spartans picked UNCG 
for various reasons, but a universal 
reason was that of the newness of the 
program. Meghan Guarnotta, from 
Winchester, Massachusetts, said, 
"UMass was too close to home, Barr\' 
was too far awav, and that we'd be es- 


tahlishiny the Iraclitions tor UNCCi 
uas a stroiiy t'acior iii my ilccisiuii." 
Prohahls' the most dit'ticiill thing 
for a new team to do is unite. The team 
made from mostly freshmen had to 
achieve unity before their first game 
against the University of Virginia on 
September 3. Not only did they come 
together as a team, but they beat the 
University of Maryland in their sec- 
ond match 2-0, Before losing to top 
ranked Carolina and Barry, the young 
but promising UNCG soccer team 
was ranked 4th in the division. By the 
time they played Duke, who they upset 
in an overtime match, they were Sth in 
the division when it came time to 
entertain Duke. Poland said, "This 
was a great win for our young pro- 

The first goal of the Duke game 
was scored .^0 minutes into the first 
half of play by Heather Duryea from 
Washington, New Jersey. Mid-fielder 
Tracie Foels from Knoxville, Ten- 
nessee assisted Duryea in her goal. 
Mandy Owen, a freshmen mid-fielder 
from Greensboro scored the tie break- 
ing goal with 10 minutes remaining in 
overtime play. "It (the win ) ensures 
a winning sea.son in our first year," 
said Poland. The Spartans went on to 
defeat Elon College 5-1 to the 
season at UNCG for an exciting 
Homecoming match. 

Duryea was named Offensive 
Most Valuable Player, while Foels re- 
ceived the Coach's Award from coach 
Poland at the end of the year's sports 
banquet. Heather had 12 of 38 of the 
goals scored in the season, Meghan 
Guarnotta had the highest number of 

assists with 1 1 out of 49 for the total 
in the season. Foels said, "There are 
ad\antages and disadvantages in tx'ing 
a nevs program, (and) one of the dis- 
advantages IS the inexperience of the 
team, but it's also a challenge and 1 
like challenges." 

The Defensive Most Valuable 
Player was Laura Mussulman a fresh- 
man goal keeper from Durham, New 
Hampshire. Laura was the starting 
goalie for the Spartan's. She had 81 
saves for the season out of a 181 
shots. She shares three shut-outs with 
her teammates Krista Chilauski from 
Raleigh and Andrea Ellison from 
Durham. The Most Improved Player 
award was given to Ellen Murray, a 
junior from Greensboro. 

The quality of experience the 
Spartan's have, along with the quan- 
tity of finesse coach Jack Poland, 
assistant Marcia McDemiott, and goal 
keeping coach Pat Johnston share will 
assure more winning seasons for the 
future of Spartan's Women Soccer.

Division I in '91 

Spartans prepare for division move 



With the Spartan's Division II 
teams concluding the year with more 
winning seasons than ever, the excite- 
ment mounts as the UNCG Athletic 
Department continues plans for the 
move to Division I in 1991. Nine 
teams completed seasons on the 
NCAA Division II level this past year. 
Four men's and five women's teams 
took to the fields and courts to com- 
pete in this (Div II) area for the first 
time in the history of UNCG sports. 
The teams include men's soccer, golf, 
basketball, and tennis. The women' 
teams include soccer, golf, basket- 
ball, tennis and volleyball. 

The men's and women's basket- 

ball team both enjoyed exciting sea- 
sons with great expectations for the 
move. They also enjoyed seasons of 
record breakers for many of the play- 
ers. Next, the men's soccer team 
finished 13th in the Division II miss- 
ing the call for the NCAA Division II 
tournament by one position. The new 
women's soccer team took the field 
and had a record of 10-7-0 with an 
exciting 2-1 overtime victory over 

Nelson Bobb, Director of Athlet- 
ics, said, "There is no looking back 
now." The yearof the move (91 ) will 
also be the University 'scentennial, so 
the students, faculty and staff of the 

athletic department have a great deal 
of work set out for themselves. Bu 
the iiroup is not worried about the 
work; they are looking at the chal- 
lenge and meeting the expectations 
with great success. 

All the scholarship money the 
players receive is donated by inves- 
tors and contributors of the Spartan 
Excellence Fund. This group is di- 
rected by Debbie Yow who is a past 
Division I women's basketball coach 
for the University of Florida and the 
University of Kentucky. Yow is re- 
sponsible for all the monies collected 
for the sports program. None of the 
money used comes from student fees. 


and none is allocaled by the stale uni- 
versity athletic depanment. 

These donations come from out- 
standing community leaders who 
believe in the winning tradition of 
UNCG sports. Having the commu- 
nity behind the depanment helps in 
the plans for the Division I move. 
Yow said, "There is an art to getting 
the community behind your school." 
It all involves winning and the idea of 
"if we win they win." 

Yow is also the Associate Ath- 
letic Director in charge of the Sports 
Infonnation Department, directed by 
TyBuckner. Buckner is busy prepar- 
ing stats for all the programs. He 
sends recent stats to all the coaches in 
the division. He organizes the press 
days each team has before the start of 
their seasons. These days involve 
scheduling television, radio, and 
newspapers for first interviews with 
the players and coaches. 

The $15.7 million Physical Ac- 
tivities Complex (PAC) will be com- 
pleted in the Spring of '89, and the 
offices will be moved from the log 
cabins to the PAC in the late winter of 
'89. This center will be incorporated 
with the old gym,and will entertain 
2800 spectators for the home games 
of the Spartans. It will allow UNCG 
to highlight and host more home 
games. The men's basketball team 
will host some contests in the Greens- 
boro Coliseum, beginning this past 
Christmas with the first UNCG Holi- 
day Tournament. 

The PAC will also house dance 
floors for classes and performances. 
The older section of the gym complex 

has been rciloiic to update ihc needs of 
the s\\iniming|iool facilities and other 
areas of the gym. A $1.5 million 
soccer stadium will also be constructed 
by the start of the 1989 season. It will 
seat 4()(X) spectators (ultimately 8000) 
and have complete press facilities. 
The money for these has been given 
by the UNCG Board of Trustees. 

The UNCG radio station, WU AG- 
103, continued and polished r/ieSpar- 
tan Spans Netwark which features 
live games, half time shows and inter- 
views with famous sports personali- 
ties. This coverage also covered inter- 
views with the players and coaches 
before and after the games. 

The move to "Division I in 91" 
will put UNCG up against Carolina, 
Wake Forest, Duke, N.C. State, along 
with other Division 1 teams. There is 
no room for "what if we aren 't ready'?" 
In an interview with the sports depart- 
ment at The Carolinian , Yow said, 
"We have to be ready!" The depart- 
ment is maintaining a "never say die" 
attitude and will achieve great suc- 
cess because of the outstanding fi- 
nesse of the staff who are making 
"Division I in '9 1 " a reality.

Answer: You sound like an active, athletic 
young man, and I, too, think there Is no sexual 
problem. Pain in the testicles can sometimes 
occur during and after Intense sexual stimulation, 
but you mention It associated with heavy lifting 
and standing.

Raise 'Miracle Pumpl<in' Turn Page To Learn How 



For my first two years at UNCG I stayed fairly uninvoived in campus activities; an occasional 
intramural sport was the most I would do. But last year all that changed when I got a job with the 
yearbook. 1 started as only office staff, but due to the extraordinary circumstances of last year, I 
soon became Business Manager and then Associate Editor. Little did 1 know then that ihai would 
be the end of my carefree college days. When I became Editor 1 knew it would require a lot of my 
time, but I wasn't aware of just how much time it would take. 

Despite the worry and the frustration, editing the yearbook has been worth it. I look back over 
the year, and I realize that yearbook is not the silly little book 1 once thought it was. 1 know this 
sounds like the rationalizations of an over-worked editor, but the yearbook is really an incredible 
publication. No other student media captures the essence of a college like the yearbot>k. It 
chronicles the whole year in one volume and covers more facets of the school than any other 
medium. What is even more incredible is that it does it in way that lasts indefinitely. There are Pine 
Needles in the library and in our office that are over sixty years old. Not just microfilm, but the 
book itself. I find it very gratifying to think that sixty years from now someone can open a book 
and see what life was like at UNCG in 1989. It is even more gratifying to know that my name will 
be on that book as editor. 

This is not to say that I did the book by myself. In fact there are some people who probably 
deserve more recognition than 1 do for this book. Susan Allen is one of those people. She more 
than any other person made this book a reality. I cannot forget Randy Harris, who was more than a 
photo editor who gave up his weekends to get prints in on time, but was my friend as v\ell. 
Margaret Moffett, the woman who refused to let me do anything because she thought 1 was already 
overworked, was both a help and an inspiration. And to Anthony "the antman" Williams, thanks 
for handling all that paper work. To everybody else who made me look good, thank you.
